A day to celebrate
The coals are red hot
The flag’s proudly waving
The fireworks are popping
And the band’s loudly playing.
All over the country
we see the stripes and stars
Today we celebrate
this great country of ours.
Hats off !
Along the street there comes
A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums,
A flash of color beneath the sky:
Hats off !
The flag is passing by !
[...]
Sign of a nation, great and strong
Toward her people from foreign wrong:
Pride and glory and honor, ‒ all
Live in the colours to stand or fall.


Henry Holcomb Bennett, “The flag goes by”, 1900.
